FEATURES OF TEXTBOOK REBINDING NATIONAL LIBRARY BINDERY COMPANY OF INDIANA OUR STANDARD TEXTBOOK REBINDING Our rebound textbooks are stitched with a heavy thread. Most other binderies simply glue the pages. A Stitched book is considerably stronger and less prone to failure than a glue bound book. We use high density binders’ board for the covers of rebound textbooks. Many other binderies use low density board. High density board will not bend and crush as easily as low density board. This is especially important for the corners of the cover which are subject to impact in daily use. Our standard rebinding offers printed covers that resemble the original textbook cover for as few as ten books of a particular title. Some binderies require much higher minimums for printed covers. We add a cloth reinforcing strip to the top and bottom of the spine inlay to add support to this area of the cover. No other bindery we know of does this. In addition to the lining around the spine of the text block, we reinforce the cover spine by adding case lining paper to the spine area and on to each of the cover boards. This provides much needed strength at the cover joints, a common point of failure on textbooks. OUR TEXTBOOK REBINDING UPGRADES A heavier cover board is offered as an upgrade. This 120 point, high density board adds durability to the cover to withstand the rigorous demands of the typical textbook. Covers can be made with a heavy group F Library Buckram cover material. While this material cannot be printed to match the illustrations of the original cover, its strength and durability are unmatched by any other cover material. A wide array of colors is available to choose from and spines are foil stamped with the title of the book. If you are concerned about longevity, this is an excellent choice.
